The Japanese Prime Minister's Office has advised the citizens of Japan to take the precautionary measure” of not feeding babies with tap water in the affected areas in Tokyo. Radioactive iodine exceeding two times the limit for infants was ...detected in water at a purification plant in Kanamachi, Tokyo. The Tokyo water was also declared fit for all purposes other than the feeding of infants. Authorities also announced that water in areas around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, which was knocked out of action by the March 11, 2011 temblor and tsunami, was found to contain radioactive iodine. In addition, high radiation was detected in soil samples at a village in the vicinity. Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary has very rightly appealed to all residents of Tokyo to refrain from panic buying of water. Outlining yet another aspect of an apparently expanding crisis, he had said in Tokyo that the air radiation level in some places outside thirty kms. range from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant exceeds the legal limit.” However, this would not necessitate an immediate evacuation of people from those areas, he said. The residents of areas in the immediate vicinity of the plant were evacuated as soon as a civil nuclear emergency was declared in the wake of the temblor and the tsunami.In an update, the International Atomic Energy Agency said on Wednesday that the progress is uncertain” in the continuing efforts to restore electricity at the damaged reactor sites for activating the cooling systems there and preventing a major catastrophe. It is time that Japanese should not be panic rather remain calm and composed and follow strictly what the Japanese Govt. keeps on making announcement from time to time. Let us hope that the Japanese Govt. will leave no stones unturned that comes on the way to restore, calm, peace and progress of the country though it has suffered enormous loss due to severe earth quake and tsunami in Japan that had hit on the 11th of March 2011 leaving over twenty thousand people dead and several thousand of people homeless and penniless and many injured going under treatment in various hospitals of Japan. We have full faith in wisdom of Japanese as whole who are known wide for their diligence, intelligence, hardworking and scientific skill. Let us hope that Japan will emerge as most shining country of the world in near future!
